Best substrate is sand and these dont require a lot of space a nice small KK will do.

A false-bottom is not necessary for desert species that only dig out shallow scrapes, so no, you wouldn't need one.

Thats far to big mate you want to get a small or medium exo terra fanarium the small you can get for like 7 posted and medium 12 posted they dont dont require a lot of space and as long as you supply a good hide that will be fine.

As for tank setup use play sand or coir blocks layer 4 inches of sand or coir on bottom place hide in a position you like and away you go these species dont require a water dish as they get all there moisure from there kill like many Desert Scorpions so very easy and cheap Scorp to run and maintain.

I have just started my desert tank conversion and i have given mine a 6" x 12" area with 4.5" of substrate. they are in smaller containers at the moment but i did notice the smaller of the two had dug a burrow 3" below the surface.
Unfortunately it had caved in but it keeps trying to burrow further than a dug out scrape I understood they did.

But a touch too much substrate isn't going to harm the scorpion Smile

I've heard from some people that these scorpions like to wander around alot at night, so mabye some extra space won't hurt them. even though they probably wouldn't know the difference..

lol mine are in 6" critter keepers at the moment with a chunk of cork bark.
They seem happy enough, they eat regularly, they have a little wonder on a night and hide under the cork during the day.
But this was only temp anyway until i got this tank sorted. just taken a little longer than i anticipated!

I must admit now it's all coming together I dont feel as 'mean' to my scorpions anymore Smile
